The fall is approaching quickly, but it does not have to stop you from your favorite hobby, grilling. I actually like that a small rain can make a barbecue a little more challenging, but not any less enjoyable! However, before you start, I recommend checking a weather app, that provides information on both rain and wind, like Weather Live Free, you can get it on Google Play. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...) Rain is manageable but combined with heavy wind, it makes grilling very difficult.
1. Heating the grill can be challenging because every time you open the lid, a lot of heat gets out. Use a couple of handfuls of more charcoal than usual and a bit more fuel. Open the lid as little as possible to keep the heat in your grill.
2. Forget umbrellas and raincoats and get a proper rain cover for the grill.
3. Prepare great fall recipes to keep things interesting (http://www.southernliving.com/food/fa...). It is a good idea to favor long-ripened dishes that do not require really hot temperatures to bake. Avoid swirling steaks and fillets in the rain.
4. If you are serious about grilling, it's time to get a proper thermometer. Find out what the ideal cooking temperature of your meat is from your meat vendor.
5. Enjoy it!
